My son claims that Nupro is better dog food than Muenster Natural
because Muenster contains corn and/or corn products.
Since both are natural dog foods, does anyone know the pros and
cons of both?

It may depend on which sales rep you run into in the pet store the day you buy your food. :-)

I mix 2 foods for my cats, one with no perservatives and one with (Science Diet) to see if they'll make the switch over to the healthier food. The argument of corn over rice is, in Logic, a bit of a "straw man." They're both grains, and it's one person's word compared to another as to whether one is better or not. Does your pet show a preference? That's one opinion you can't afford to ignore!

There is no dry dog food better than Muenster Natural. The only food of any kind that is better is raw meat, bones and lightly cooked grains - but that's too much trouble for most folks. Table scraps are good too, if you are eating a decent diet.

I won't argue with that! I just question the argument of rice (offered by the competition) over corn as the grain. I think in the end they both have their merits if they're good quality grains. Overall all of the extra and unusual ingredients in Muenster are much better than the other foods out there. My dogs simply don't have fleas, don't have hot spots, and have beautiful coats. I don't think they could inhale their food any faster than they do now--so they have no objection to the flavor either.

It has been several months since I was researching the dogfoods available in this area, and what I remembered was that corn was listed first on the bag, is all.

It wasn't my intent to impune Muenster's good name, but to suggest in the first place that the sales people who inhabit the aisles at places like Petsmart are good at selling their products. A lot of people don't realize they don't work for Petsmart at all, that they probably work on comission or some other way to earn a cut of the day's proceeds of their particular pet food. So they lean more heavily on the ingredients listed first in their products and will suggest to a non-discriminating shopper that their grain is better. And when you start reading the bags of any food your eyes can glaze over pretty quickly with all of the ingredients, so who knows if anyone actually takes the time to read and compare?

I did experience some confusion with Muenster's other foods, because they do also make some non-organic foods that do contain preservatives. I was bragging about the food to a friend, who went online to check it out and found the non- (or less-) organic set of foods listed at their site, so I went back and poke around and found that both "types" of food were available. The food with preservatives turns up under this link: http://www.muenstermilling.com/other.php

Muenster has recently improved its products - to make the best products even better:

Muenster Natural Dog Foods
Muenster Natural Dog Food is made with a five grain balance of carbohydrates instead of just being made from 1 or 2 grains. Then flax seed is added to balance the Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. Stabilized flax is natures richest source of Omega 3! Nutritional experts have found that a diet rich in Omega 3 and natural antioxidants significantly improves the health and appearance of animals. Natural tocopherols (which are a source of vitamin E), citric acid, and rosemary extract are natural antioxidants used in Muenster Natural.

Muenster Natural Cat Foods
Muenster Natural Cat Food is a nutritious diet like no other. Made with all natural ingredients with no chemical preservatives, it is formulated to exceed the nutrient profile recommendations for all life cycles established by the American Association of Feed Control officials when fed according to the established guidelines. Intake may vary on individual cats depending on environmental conditions, exercise, and temperament. Adjust feed intake according to the conditions of your pet.

Muenster Horse Feeds
Muenster Milling Company manufactures a line of totally extruded Equine products like none other on the market today, Extreme Horse Feedsâ„¢. From a Foal feed to a Senior diet, we have an extruded horse feed for every situation. The Extrusion process improves the nutrient availability and increases the starch digestion for horses. It is fortified with Diamond Vâ„¢ Yeast Culture to further enhance nutrient digestion and Flaxseed to boost the Omega 3 level for a healthier immune system. Mixed tocopherols and citric acid are added to preserve the freshness.
